One Person Company Registration

An OPC or One Person Company is a business format where a single person owns the company. There is no more than a single director or more than a single member. Being a single-handled company, an OPC is easy to manage. If you are an entrepreneur who seeks singular success, you can register as an OPC in India.

The definition of a One Person Company is explained in Sub Section 62 of Section 3 of the Companies Act, 2013, which states: “One Person Company means a company which features only one Member.” Therefore, unlike a Private Limited Company, this single company registration of a single owner doesn’t need a minimum of two directors. However, like a private limited company, the online One Person Company Registration in India does provide you with Limited Liability.

The process of company registration in India is simple and includes fewer steps. Apply for DSC and DIN, then send the name of the company for approval, collect all the documents, and file the form on the MCA website if the authority found the application and documents correct, then it provides you a status of One Person Company.

Benefits of a One Person Company registration

Benefits of a One Person Company registration

After the online registration of One Person Company in India, there are the following benefits that can be enjoyed:

Separate Legal Entity

An OPC Company has a separate legal entity from its members. The separate legal entity provides protection to a single individual who is incorporated in the business. The liability of the members is limited to their shares and they are not personally liable for any loss of the company. So, the creditors can sue the OPC and not the member or a director. As the business entity is a company, the entrepreneurs have their assets protected from the failings of the company.

Less Number of Compliances

For One Person Company, the number of compliances is less. They do not have to prepare the cash flow statement and there is no need for a company secretary to sign the books of accounts and annual returns to be signed. This should be signed only by the director.

Easy Incorporation

Incorporating an OPC is easier as compared to other company formations. Because there is only one nominee or member is required for the incorporation. This member can be a director also. The minimum authorised capital required is Rs. 1 lakh but there is no cap on the minimum paid-up capital required.

Easy to Manage Affairs

As the OPC is made by a single person, all its affairs are easy to manage. So, it is easy to make decisions, and the process becomes quick. Every ordinary and special resolution can be passed easily by just one sign of a sole member. Because of this no conflict and delay happened in company activities.

Perpetual Succession

Even if there is one member in the company, the OPC has a feature of perpetual succession. A single person should be appointed as a nominee while incorporating a company. In case of a member’s death, the nominee will run the company in the place of the member.
